For the paper, published in Acta Neuropathologica, researchers studied the medical records of four people who had brain bleeds caused by amyloid beta build-up in brain blood vessels. All four people had undergone neurosurgery two or three decades earlier as children or teenagers, raising the possibility that amyloid beta deposition may be transmissible. (2018-02-15)

MRI better than current standard in assessing neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer
More breast cancer patients with large palpable tumors are now undergoing chemotherapy before surgery in an effort to reduce the size of their tumor, and MRI is the best way to predict if the chemotherapy is working, preliminary results of a study show. If the chemotherapy is successful, then the woman may be able to undergo breast-conservation surgery rather than a mastectomy. (2005-03-03)

Over the edge: New therapeutic strategy takes advantage of stressed cancer cells
A biochemical alteration that has long been viewed as an adverse aspect of tumor biology may turn out to be a deadly double-edged sword for the cancer cells themselves. Scientists have successfully exploited the oxidative stress common in cancer cells to preferentially kill malignant cells. This approach has the therapeutic advantage of selectively targeting cancer cells while exhibiting minimal toxicity in normal cells. The research is published in the September 2006 issue of the journal Cancer Cell, published by Cell Press. (2006-09-11)

Mutations in a multifunctional protein cause parkinsonism
Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., and colleagues in Canada and Germany have discovered a gene and six mutations of it that cause symptoms associated with several neurodegenerative disorders associated with parkinsonism. Brain autopsy on deceased members of six families affected by Parkinson's disease indicate mutations in the LRRK2 gene play a central role in developing pathology characteristic of Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Lou Gehrig's disease.

Researchers identify tissue biomarker for dementia with lewy bodies and Parkinson's disease
Accurate diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, and the related disease 'dementia with Lewy bodies,' can be difficult in the early stages of both conditions. While brain biopsies can be more accurate, the risk of complications has been considered too high. New research published in the Journal of Parkinson's Disease indicates that a biopsy of the submandibular gland can help identify the same pathology that is seen in the brain, providing some of the increased accuracy of brain biopsy, but not the increased risk. (2016-04-11)

An intriguing new gene candidate in the search for Alzheimer's disease therapies
Tau pathology is one of the defining features of Alzheimer's disease (AD), which is the most common form of dementia in older age. While symptomatic treatments exist, there are currently no preventive therapies for AD.
